That first line has the potency to make anyone fall asleep halfway through it. How do I do this without running off a list?
I’ve actually been thinking about this topic the last few days and this morning as I sat in the bathtub I thought to myself. “Bath tubs actually make me very uncomfortable. I should add that to the list.” I mean you’re sitting there and it’s like “how many people have sat in this?” I do wash our bathtub but, I don’t know, it just seems odd. I’m definitely a shower kind of girl and only use the bath tub maybe once a year. (public swimming pools fall in this category too)
Add to that: using the toilet (yours, a neighbors, who knows) with the shower curtain shut. You know what I’m saying. I know I’m not the only one who checks behind the curtain first before using the bathroom. If I’m really panicked I’ll throw the whole thing wide open first just so I know something isn’t going to “appear” after I’ve checked the first time but I always pull it back into place before I leave.
Speaking of bathtubs, lakes make me super uncomfortable. Especially when you’re sitting behind a ski boat holding a rope, with two wooden skis on your feet, and your bum is just hanging out all by itself in the water just waiting for a big alligator to come nibble on it. My mom would literally joke like that! Yet there I was nearly 16 years old panicking about the fake alligators in lake powell that were going to get my bum! Oh the shame! I really really looooove lakes (: psh (unless there’s someone else with me, then the alligators will get them!)
Snakes make me really uncomfortable too. Once I walked over one and my brother said, “Look at that snake.” I probably jumped as high as the top of the tree next to me. No, no, no, no, no.
Likewise if I’m walking in really tall grass and someone even mentions the snake word I will take off running with my knees hitting my chest. Road runner right outta there.
Sleeping in dirty socks. I’ve tried to do that and I just can’t. I have to get up and change them. Not even sure where that comes from.
Raw meat. Raw hamburger gives me the shivels. Raw chicken, raw pork. If it’s frozen it’s not as bad but you should see me trying to unwrap the meat from the packaging. It’s like watching a grandma unwrap a present without wrinkling the paper.
What makes you uncomfortable??
